Established multi-disciplinary courses available to you

Given the fact that the law underpins all human interaction with animals, it follows that a sound understanding of the legal responsibilities pertaining to animals is essential information for all organisations, groups and/or individuals who are directly, or indirectly, involved with animals.

The contents and delivery of each course taught by International Animal-Law is adapted to suit the audience, and a legal background is not necessary for successful completion of the course. To date the Animals and the Law course taught by International Animal-Law has been attended by a wide range of professionals including lawyers, veterinarians, scientists, ethicists, and representatives from government and non-government organisations.

The Animals and the Law course has been delivered as face-to-face courses in Law Schools in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, as an online course for veterinary Masters students, adapted for presentation as a seminar series for Local Authorities in the United Kingdom, and is available online as a tailored education course for veterinarians and other professionals in New Zealand and Australia.

You have options on how to attend the IAL courses. There are face-to-face options presented on-site, or, you have on-line courses which are presented in convenient module form. See below for more information.
